ONLINE POKER IN NEW YORK
New Yorkers tend not to have too much choice when it comes to playing online poker. Certainly over the last five years, there has been a vast decrease in the amount of poker rooms accepting online players. It is now a well-known fact that even some of the big companies such as Full Tilt have not been able to open their online doors to New Yorkers following the events of Black Friday.
LEGAL ONLINE POKER ROOMS IN NEW YORK
It is certainly a sensitive albeit grey area when debating whether online poker is legitimate in New York. Sadly most online poker rooms will not accept players from New York and never have done but it is worth noting that there are still a few reputable sites that will. It is important to note that nobody has even been prosecuted for playing online poker, all the risk is lies with the host company itself.

ONLINE POKER SITES ACCEPTING NEW YORKERS
Current legislation makes the market for online poker in New York rather baffling. The heart of the problem lies in the fact that the US government currently does not receive a dime in taxation of gambling company profits or from the online poker players’ winnings. In the near future it is more than likely that a state-by-state policy for online poker sites accepting USA players will come into play. However it is also likely that only players from a certain state can play against others from that state, hence the profits from the games will be heavily taxed.
It is quite likely that New York poker players will be able to sign up online in 2012/2013.
